In 2017, I visited India and was so captivated by the sensorial images of the people and their culture that I picked up a pen and couldn’t stop writing. I didn’t go to India with the intention of writing a book but my appetite was whetted long before I went. Despite having waited many years to get there, my passion never waned.
Sometimes our life journey resembles those in Greek mythology. We receive a call to action and in so doing, we cross the threshold into the unknown. My Indian journey was indeed my most memorable and life-changing and it inspired me to write my book, “Chasing Marigolds”. https://moirayeldon.com/index.php/books/
“Chasing Marigolds” is written as an interactive journal with meditations and recipes that the readers can use and feel as if they too are experiencing the sensuality and vibrancy of India.
My two latest books, “Where Sunbeams Falls” and “Where Dragonflies Dare to Dream” (it’s sequel) are both set in the exotic Shangri-La of Brunei Darussalam in Southeast Asia. My inspiration and passion for writing these contemporary fiction novels comes from having lived in Brunei for almost twelve years.
During the time I was there I witnessed the perpetual rhythm of life, the succession of the young sultan, and the death of his father. It was an interesting time as this tiny Islamic sultanate gained its independence and was transformed into the thriving modern state it is today.
I wanted to share this unique location, its culture, and the exciting time in which the stories were set. As you read, I hope you feel as if you are there with the characters in this enigmatic setting.
As a child I was told to write stories, to allow my imaginations to run wild. As a teen I kept journals to help make sense of my world. As an adult I write for creative expression, to put down on paper what I’m feeling inside. When I write I unleash the pure joy of tapping into another world of endless thoughts, ideas, and possibilities. As I venture into places I’ve been or are yet to go, I discover characters who sometimes resemble those I know or those who are about to unfold.
When I write, I hope to inspire and enlighten, to uplift and entertain those who read my words. But mainly, I write to create pure magic from what I feel in my heart and soul.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories.
